Does anyone have a clever way to keep the grain uniform throughout a run of cabinets? We can control the matched grain in the doors and drawers within a given cabinet but the adjacent cabinets in the run can end up with a markedly different grain pattern. Does anyone have a good way to keep the grained matched fronts of an elevation together during the optimization process?

thanks

Tom,

if you are cutting from stock panels then you may need to create numbered panels in your compositions.

This will make each grained blank unique and if you put it on the matching parts it will make the parts unique id's.

assign Line_Item_ID
if @Want_Unique__by_line__Grained_Panels_=1
assign Line_Item_ID @line_id
endif
assign result @NOTE__Part_Category_Grained_Panel Blank For @Line_Item_ID

Then change the composition for adjacent line items to use a numbered panel

I have compositions and part/product classes (up to 100):
Wall Panel #01 Custom
Wall Panel #02 Custom
Wall Panel #03 Custom
Wall Panel #04 Custom
Wall Panel #05 Custom

Each part is in a different class so I can control the match.

If you are ordering custom panels like 96 x 28 then set the items up in that elevation to use those panels.

Those that are using CNC nesting can put the machine groups on the blank and cut in order and submit to the optimizer by line item, also if you use a custom size panel it will match across the elevation.
